Things to do

MAISIE ADAMS: Comedian Maisie Adams brings her show Vague — which debuted at Edinburgh — to London, sharing her experiences of navigating the recklessness of youth whilst dealing with a medical condition that required her to be a ‘Sensible Susan’. Soho Theatre, from £12, book ahead, until 12 January

I OBJECT: You've only got a couple more weeks to see British Museum's exhibition about rebellion, curated by Ian Hislop. The downtrodden, the forgotten and the protesters from history are given voices, through objects including defaced coins, a prank Banksy and more. British Museum, £12, book ahead, until 20 January

HANDLE WITH CARE: The Royal Horticultural Society's new exhibition, Handle With Care, begins today, showcasing how the library protects and conserves its collections, and exploring some of the challenges it faces with the different types of material in the collections. RHS Lindley Library (Victoria), free, just turn up, until 15 February

CAROLINE OR CHANGE: There's still time to see Caroline Or Change, a poignant musical about a poor black maid, and a misguided decision by her employer to augment her meagre wages by leaving loose change in the laundry. Read our full review. The Playhouse Theatre (Charing Cross), £20-£85, book ahead, until 6 April

HEADS AND BODIES: You know the drill: one person draws a head, they fold the paper, pass it on, the next person draws the shoulders, folds the paper, passes it on. But there's a twist on this kids' game — it's adults-only, and booze is likely to be involved. What can possibly go wrong? The Book Club (Shoreditch), free entry, just turn up, 7pm-8.30pm

IMPROV COMEDY: Enjoy an evening of free improv comedy at Shoot From The Hip, a regular comedy night starring a resident troupe. The Camden Head (Islington), free, just turn up, 8pm-10pm

FOLK ON MONDAY: Fiddle player Matt Tighe and bodhrán (Irish drum) played Tad Sargent headline tonight's Folk On Monday, a regular event which highlights the talents of London's best folk musicians. The Green Note (Camden), £8, book ahead, 8.30pm

Good cause of the day
